Gary Gray have been working on. But will this be just another "music inspired by the film"-style soundtrack? Or something bigger?

    The hip hop crew is an essential part of success. Whether big or small, every rapper has an entourage. Sometimes it's full of rappers, and other times it's just his buddies from back in the day, nonetheless, weak links in a crew can water down the crew as a whole-- something we took into consideration when crafting this list. You have the multimedia approach that Odd Future takes, and also the full-on lyrical assault that Wu-Tang Clan makes. Both are great crews, but who would comprise a list of the best rap crews of all time?

This is ripe territory to rank the best features on the album and include some of our favorite bars.
